Summary of Internship

At this internship I worked in many departments to better enable me to understand the vast opportunities in the healthcare society. I started out in the pharmacy department, which was the original position I wanted, Here I gained a better understanding of the Pharmacists role in the Hospital. The pharmacists simple make mixtures of the different types of medications used daily in the Hospital. These medications are distributed to all the different departments in the hospital where they are needed and used to help patients. I then moved to the emergency department, here I witnessed the different types of emergency situations, and I also gained the opportunity to witness a minimal surgery take place on a patients finger. Finally, I moved to the rehabilitation department, and here I helped the therapists with their patients to better improve the lives of the patients.
